Official Tournament Rules

OFFICIAL RULES

EVERY PLAYERS NEEDS A GOLF CANADA MEMBERSHIP IN ORDER TO PLAY IN EACH EVENT. IF THE PLAYER DOESN'T GET A GOLF CANADA MEMBERSHIP THEY WILL PAY AS A SCRATCH GOLFER.

The format is 2-man scramble, stroke play at 50% median handicap between two players (ex:If player 1 has a 4 handicap and player 2 has a 8 handicap there team handicap will be 3). All handicaps .5 or higher will be rounded up. Additionally all other rules will follow the USGA/ CPGA Rules of Golf. 

Each event will be played under the USGA/CPGA rules of golf with two footnotes: 1) local rules apply and will be defined before competition; 2) Commissioner Jacob and Brandon have the final say on everything.

Canadian Two Ball Scramble Rules:

    • Both players tee off. From there, the two players decide on the best ball to play
    • The golfer's ball the team decides to use must remain in place while the second player gets a square of 1 scorecard in size to play their shot.
    • This process will continue until the team has a golf ball on the green they decide to play. 
    • When playing on the green, mark the ball the team decides to use, place a ball mark of the partner one putter head length from the ball no closer to the hole. Once the first player has putt, the second player can use the same putter head length to place the ball mark back in as close of a position as possible to the initial ball.
    • THE BALL MUST HIT THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP. For this event, there are ZERO Gimmies and all teams must play out until their ball has reached the hole.
    • The team will then record their GROSS score onto the card. ie, if your team makes par on a par 4, you will write “4” on your scorecard. If it is a hole where your team gets a stroke (determined by a dot on the scorecard) the scorers, post round, will apply that to the final score.
    • Local rules and regulations will apply in regards to hazards and unplayable locations around the golf course.

If there is a ruling that needs to be discussed or talked over, please reach out to any of the staff helping with The Canadian Two Ball Scramble.

  • Most important thing with The Canadian Two Ball Scramble….HAVE FUN!!! Enjoy the match and play to the best of your abilities and we hope to see you up at Taboo this Fall!

Tie Breaker Rules: If two teams in any of the qualifying events post the same score The Canadian Two Ball Scramble will use 18 hole retrogression to break the tie.
